You will compete at the Miss California USA Pageant, how will you prepare for the contest ? What inspired you to walk on the course of beauty pageants?
I will continue living a healthy lifestyle mentally & physically. I will make sure I have all of my wardrobe and styling prepared so I feel confidently beautiful competing on stage, and I will continue volunteering with organizationss like the Jessie Rees Foundation and the Second Harvest Food Bank.
I was inspired to compete to show that pageants aren’t just about what on the outside, but how beautiful one can be on the inside.
What do you expect to gain by competing in pageantry?
I always gain something different each time I compete-whether it be new beauty tips or new friends!
Many misses have said that their dream since a child was to participate in a pageant as prestigious as Miss World (or Miss Universe). It your case? And if so, why?
I would love to compete on the Miss USA stage and advance to the Miss Universe Stage. I have watched the Miss USA pageant since I was young and even watched a Miss USA pageant live-since that moment it has been a dream to compete on the Miss Universe Stage!

Did you face any moment of disappointment with yourself during the pageant journey, and how did you overcome it?
Adversity is something that is inevitable in pageantry and in life-but it is something that makes us stronger, I never let any moment of disappointment set me back or deter me from my dreams!
What would you advise any young girl out there who has a dream of being a queen one day?
Never give up, and never change your values, or morals to reach your goals.
Thanks to the beautiful Amanda for the interview. Pageants News wishes you all the very best for Miss California USA pageant.
